How To Play Candy – Paolo Nutini

Many of my beginner students love this song, the chords are quite easy, but the rhythm is more challenging.

The most common problem is changing from the G to The D, and from the D to the Am. Have fun and don’t worry if it takes a bit of time to master the song – you will get there!

Song structure:
Intro: Am / Em
Verse/Chorus: Am / Em / G / D
Outro: C / G / C / D

How To Play I’m outta time – Oasis

This song is a nice step up from “Zombie”. The strumming pattern is still very simple but we have a few more chords here.

Pay attention to the G and D chords – they usually cause the most problems. You may try to practice them in isolation before trying to play them in the song.

Song structure:
Verse: Em / E7sus4 / Am / C
Chorus: G / D / Em / Am / C / G
